A complete set of 5 notes from Cottbus with face-values in amounts (pfund = pound weight or 'lb') of rye ('roggen':



These wertbestaendige notgeld issues, in actual commodities, only amount to about 10% of the whole wertbestaendiges notgeld issues.

A note from Schlicht:



.....with a face value of '10 bricks'!

(The note's 'fixed value' would be the same in a week's time, thus trying to resolve the issue of the hyper-inflation).

@ScotsGreyhound - what would be the difference in value and scarcity of the 2 notes please? They must look great next to each other in your albums.....

@notgeldman, no difference in value. Either note can be had for around 1 usually.
Worthless, in the grand scheme of things except to collectors like myself who simply enjoy it for what it is.

-I prefer the original "brown" version myself (& its nice to have both to compare). The SCWPM Book Value (BV) may change over time once collectors develop a desire/interest to acquire said note. It's always important to keep in mind that BV are just estimates of what collectors may pay for a particular note (usually revised by a pricing panel over time). They're dated as soon the catalogue is released. They're best "guestimates" but the figure can either be too high (esp for common notes) or too low (for tougher notes). The true market value (what we actually pay for a particular example) is often quite another story & the reason these forums (CCF) & the like are very helpful.

@ScotsGreyhound - good to know. Us collectors like the whole fascination, research and educational bonus possibilities that collecting banknotes and notgeld gives us. If you are in it to primarily make money - I think its a bad choice. So I 100% agree with you - the passion comes from the actual collecting and not the value of the notes...........
Its always nice to be able to 'show off' to other collectors some rare pieces from one's collection though!

Absolutely notgeldman.
The amount of times I've sat watching a quiz on the tv & answered a question correctly, my missus will say "how'd you know that?"
"It's on a banknote"

Limited to 2500 pieces, this scarce Austrian notgeld complete piece was issued in Altenmarkt. The total face value (15+20+30+50) was 115 heller....or 1 Krone, 15 heller. I think the issuers here were trying to get an additional 15 heller for their basic 1 krone piece!? The official oval stampmark was applied in the central space, so if the card got split into seperate pieces (values) it could be seen as being official:
